EthicsPoint and LexisNexis Form Alliance to Enable Companies to Mitigate Risk, Reduce Penalties and Protect Their Reputation

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - EthicsPoint, the global authority in hotline and anti-fraud reporting and case management services, and LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions designed specifically for professionals in the legal, risk management, corporate, government, law enforcement, accounting, and academic markets, announced an alliance to enable organizations to maintain a culture of integrity and compliance. With this alliance, the EthicsPoint Issue and Event Manager Suite of software solutions will be featured as a critical component of the LexisNexis Compliance Solutions offering.

Organizations today face not only an ever-expanding list of regulatory mandates to which they need to maintain compliance, but also governmental agencies that are increasing their enforcement activities around these mandates. In such a climate, it's imperative that companies both closely monitor and understand the impact of regulatory changes on their business as well as implement policies and processes to ensure potential risks are brought forward and investigated consistently and efficiently. The LexisNexis and EthicsPoint partnership addresses this issue through software and information services.

"We are pleased to announce our alliance with EthicsPoint," said Renee Citera, Vice President -- Research & Compliance of LexisNexis. "We evaluated many vendors for inclusion in this program, and believe EthicsPoint's industry-leading solution is a natural fit within the LexisNexis Compliance Solutions and will help our clients protect their reputations, promote an ethical workforce and maintain an effective compliance program."

LexisNexis Compliance Solutions include cutting-edge compliance tools, world-class regulatory intelligence and content, and access to industry-leading compliance experts -- a robust combination that yields a unique compliance package unavailable elsewhere on the market.

"It's clear to me that the pace and complexity of new regulations will continue unabated, the risk of enforcement actions is greater now than ever before, and automating your compliance efforts through software is required to stay current in this environment," said David Childers, CEO of EthicsPoint. "The combination of the EthicsPoint solution and LexisNexis services and expertise within the legal and compliance realm provide true value for those companies attempting to navigate these complex times."
